Gadgets of the Future
The world is rapidly approaching the point when we will be using artificial intelligence in our everyday lives. From telematics-powered smart tires to AI-enabled fridges, our future devices are becoming increasingly intelligent. Whether we will have smell-detecting AI in our refrigerators will remain to be seen, but we’re not far away from that day. In the meantime, we can enjoy a glimpse of what we can expect in the near future.
A glimpse at the future of technology came at CES last week. The Consumer Electronics Show was the largest technology exhibition in the world. Some of the most innovative and outlandish devices were on display. We saw 3D glasses, holographic screens, and wearable sensors that let you use your voice to control gadgets. Other companies showed off wearable gadgets that have the capability to fold into a tablet. Those with a strong sense of curiosity should keep a lookout for the future of gadgets.
The Xperia Touch Portable Projector uses short-throw projection to display an image up to 80 inches. With full interaction capabilities, it responds to touches with a camera with infrared technology 60 frames per second. A new interactive screen allows you to measure the freshness of food and check a company’s product information. Another innovative gadget is the Fujifilm instant camera. It has a dual-mode camera with two buttons and can even take a selfie.
Some of the gadgets of the future include smart TVs and jet packs that are portable and easy to use. The Sony Viao P laptop, which costs PS800, has a sleek design and a shiny case. The Eee keyboard from Taiwanese company Asus has generated much interest as an electronic keyboard. The Eee keyboard has a fully-functioning PC inside. There are even more futuristic gadgets on the horizon.
Space technology is also a hot topic at the CES. The Sierra Nevada Corporation is an exhibitor in the space technology sector. It has created a novel inflatable space habitat that astronauts can live in for extended periods of time. This device, named the Large Inflatable Flexible Environment, is part of NASA’s “Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships” initiative. It could revolutionize the way we explore space. CES is a great place to learn about the cutting-edge technology that will change our lives in the future.
In other areas of tech, a recent product that’s been generating quite a bit of hype is the Beats Wireless earbuds, backed by the iPod creator Tony Fadell and the YouTube vlogger Casey Neistat. The product aims to provide premium audio performance at a price that won’t break the bank. Another example of a futuristic tech gadget is a Bluetooth speaker that fits in a cassette player slot. It has a button to “eject” the device when needed.
